I think you mean a "fast one" reviewer...typo in the first line of your review.
Anyway, I loved this episode, because it showed growth on the part of Kenzi and Deeks and their relationship. I have been wanting the two of them to get together for a long time now, mainly because they are so different, yet their good and bad qualities compliment each other, as in Deeks makes Kenzi not take herself too seriously and Kenzi grounds Deeks when he's being too much of a doofus (though he's a hot doofus). And I adored Linda Hunts lines, especially when she asked Sam if there was anything she could do to help him and he looked at Callen and said, "Uh, no, I've got this" or something to that effect. You could tell he'd rather be bitten by a rattlesnake than have Hetty babysit his children! LOL! She is small, but formidable! The young man who played Javier was just so beautiful, and such a good actor, I enjoyed all the scenes he was in. He emotes so well! Wish I could see Kenzi and Deeks babysitting..I imagine it will be pretty funny!
I loved this episode but was shocked by the ending, and I sincerely hope that they don't kill off Ziva the way that they did Kate or Jenny. I just wonder why it is always the woman on the team who dies...does she get a red shirt when she signs up or something? Now I hear that Mike Franks is somehow coming back (I can't imagine how as we all saw him die and saw Gibbs at his funeral) so again, it seems like the guys are invincible but the women, not so much. I would freak out if they killed off Abby, as she's the best character on that show! I love that Tony and Ziva got some quality time together, and I also loved those scenes with Ziva as a child and the man who played her young father was amazing! I also always enjoy McGee and Ducky whenever they're in an ep, but Jimmy Palmer gets on my nerves, he's so annoying.
Oh, and good riddance to boring Dr Lauren, who made clear her deception to Bo in this ep, and I believe that she doesn't really love Bo as much as Bo seems to love her. Seriously, Lauren hasn't done a whole lot of good for Bo as a girlfriend, and I think Bo would be better off in a three way relationship with Tamsin and Dyson, who are Fae and could satisfy her hunger and help her heal in ways that Lauren the loser can't. But as to why Bruce loves Kenzi, seriously WatchesTooMuch, who DOESN'T love that sparky and snarky little thief? Also, I've noticed that often really BIG dudes tend to fall in love with tiny, petite women, probably because they themselves are so big they appreciate something small and delicate. I think they make a hilarious couple,too. I just wish we could see more of Lost Girl before next year!
WatchesTooMuch, LOL on the Bo and "Gowron" chancellor of the Klingon High Council comment! Go Trekkies! But I had much the same questions as you do about why Hale would abdicate the Ash throne when Vex has the Morrigan all tied up and ready for delivery.And it was never clear to me why Trick would abandon the Dal and go on a vacation with his lady love to Scotland when everything is in such a state of crisis with the Fae!Trick usually seems more like the kind of guy to try and solve problems, rather than run away from them, especially when his granddaughter is in danger from her father! And I also wondered that if he could disappear her in smoke, why he didn't take Bo before this, and why he took Dyson and Tamsin (though I have to say I also LOLed at Dyson picking pieces of the evil scientist out of his teeth!)
Though I loved this episode, I agree with Dreamrose that Lanie and Espo need to get Castle and Beckett to have a conversation about their relationship and whether or not it will be leading to marriage. Beckett is scared about going into marriage with Castle, who has been married so many times before to glamorous women, and I don't blame her. He's a rich playboy, and though he loves her, she has to understand that he's still immature enough to want to finish a video game match rather than make love to her. There are good things about guys like that and bad things. The fact that he will always love her and be faithful is great, but his immaturity will shine through every now and then, because that is what he's like. Most men are like that about sports and watching it on TV. It's a guy thing, I think.
I loved this episode, and was so happy to see Cam and Aristoo together at the end, and to see them admit to the depth of their love. I was also thrilled to see Hodgins and Angela watching Cam and Aristoo and doing their dead level best to try to keep him alive, while also trying to find the antidote. They are the best couple on this show, IMHO, because I have never really felt that much chemistry between Booth and Bones. But Angela and Hodgins were having nooners in the Egyptian exhibit in the first or second season! Lots of chemistry there. Anyway, I loved that Brennan stabbed that a-hole in the neck to get the antidote.I thought that was the best thing she's done for a long time. So I agree with Margaret Mary, great cast who carried out a solid episode. I was fascinated by all the mutated viruses they found in this ep, and how they found that it was a bacteria added to the virus.
BTW, I love this show, and I hope that they do NOT cancel it! Please give us a season 2!! This show is so much better than so many other shows that were renewed!
This was a great episode, and though I was sad to see Evan die, I think, like everyone else, that Evan will be resurected as a supersoldier by Muirfield and he will be brainwashed to go after Vincent and kill him. But I hope that he doesn't try to hunt Catherine instead.
I also hope that next season Catherine gets pregnant with Vincent's child, because you know that everyone is going to wonder if the baby will have beast mutations. Still, it would be a great storyline, and I would also like to see them get married in secret. I am glad that they have the hot guy from Covert Affairs on this show now, but I wish he wasn't such a bad guy. I hope he redeems himself and doesn't harm Cat in the process.
The reviewer said "All of the New York scenes tonight were perfect. All of them. Rachel was totally being Rachel during her audition practice and Shelby swooped in with a save. I love when Lea Michele and Idina Menzel sing together. LOVE. I would lobby for an entire episode of duets with these two if I could."
AMEN to that! I totally agree! I loved the duo of Rachel and her mom singing together, a much better song than Poker Face, btw, and I was thrilled when Rachel sang Don't Stop Believin' with her Glee Club originals.
What I didn't like were the Finn and Puck in college cliches scenes. Bleck. I also think that the new Glee kids aren't outcasts enough, as the originals were.And I missed Joe, Sugar and Sue Slyvester
continued...to live in an American state where your right to kvetch about the American military is protected under law. There are many other places in the world where speaking out against the military would get you jailed, tortured and killed.
BTW, was moved to tears by the final scenes in the cemetery where Steve gave his buddys little girl his dog tags. Amazing stuff. And Alex looks so handsome in uniform!
Also, I loved seeing flashbacks of Steve's SEAL training and Hell Week...I actually know a kid who is becoming a Navy SEAL, and I am in awe of his strength and courage.
